If you do wait until Carlisle, you could look around at cars and ask owners there what they are running.


Louie, how do the center caps attack to those wheels? I don't see the set screws, do they attach from the back?

Because you are still running drums give you 3/4 of an inch more room to the outside then discs these are 225/70/15 and the car is lowered

Old school daisies 7-15s with 3.75 BS

Reno - Dang, those Daisies look just amazing. wow. That look is speaking to me.

OK, an on-line AR Wheels dealer has the Daisies, and they also offer a: 15x7, 5x4.75, OFFSET - 0 , BACKSPACING - 4.00"

Thinking the 4.0 vs 3.75 BS would be a benefit fitment/safety wise? Yes/no?
** I Really want to run the 235/60/15's! The 9.3" width is very desirable to me, and the 26.1 height meets my new spare height- which I went to great length/expense to get! With the 4.0 inch BS, and stock drums, please tell me the 235/60/15 will clear! (well, only if it's true!) Thanks

I have 235/60/15 on the rear of my 65 it clears with no issue, I didn't want to chance a busted fender lip so I went with 215/60/15 in the front, and they clear full lock as well as entering a driveway. I have 4 wheel discs and TT's, with drums you gain a bit so you might make it but I would be skeptical.

Thanks I have always Liked the CP 200s or Daisies bought a new set of western 200s in 78 for my Z28 still have them. The 225s are really pushing it but maybe with a 4" BS it could work. There's a hot rod article all about it can't remember what it's called and they do run 235s. But I think with a 3.75 BS. good luck
